Since our pets age faster than we do, we recommend annual wellness exams. The reason for these exams is to catch problems while they are manageable. Our goal is to help your pet live the longest, healthiest life possible.

Age Charts for Dogs and Cats
We provide spay and neuter services for both your dogs and cats.We recommend spaying and neutering all pets at 6 months of age.
As a service to our community we offer a discount on spay and neuter fees for any animal adopted from the Humane Society of Otter Tail County.
It is important to routinely treat animals at risk for parasites. Puppies, kittens and animals that go outdoors should have scheduled dewormings. Not all parasites are treated with routine dewormers and that is why it is important to follow up with a fecal examination.
To help prevent the diseases transmitted through ticks and fleas we offer Frontline Plus and Nexgard to protect your pet.
Our dental services include teeth cleaning, polishing, fluoride treatment, instructions on home oral care, and tooth
extractions if needed.
Why is dental health important?
The reason that we stress dental health is because the bacteria that sets up shop on your pet's teeth has an express route to their bloodstream via the gum line. This can cause problems with their internal organs including the heart valves causing murmur, and also damage to the liver and kidneys.
